Motorists running stop signs and failing to yield the right of way to other traffic on the road are causing too many crashes, state law enforcement officials say.
Failure-to-yield violations were the second-highest cause of fatal crashes throughout Ohio in 2012, according to statistics from the Ohio State Highway Patrol (OSHP). Locally, a motorist’s failure to yield the right of way led to one of Auglaize County’s six fatalities in 2012. The mishap occurred at the intersection of Ohio 117 and Fairmount Road.
